Lightbulb You know that feeling you get when your knee puck drags on the ground...

You know.... That surge of adrenaline and knowing your doing it right.... For the most part....

For me I sometimes feel sick cause I can't ride, or daydream all the time about riding and hitting that next corner.

What fixes that feeling besides riding? I know some that drag knee on the streets...but for the rest... What do you have to do to get that "feeling" out of your system.. Is it at the track, does street calm you down. What do you do?

Do you feel welcome at the track or that street ride you go on?

I just can't shake this feeling!!!

I prefer the track, feel more comfortable pushing it harder. I will always ride street, but toning it down more. I still haven't dragged knee though.

I race the woods. The woods is my playground. It's the only place in time that I can focus on only what's up ahead. It's funny how quiet the world gets when my motor is screaming.

I bet. Not just the regular track day. I want to get a super moto for the streets though. soon as I can but wanna try racing for a bit to see what my are made of. Before I go hurting my self in the woods or trails... Lol. No really I wanna give it my all out there but the funds and other parts of life keep you punishing forward...

I have given up a lot of street but that's just cause I race my street bike. Got my q3s ready for the winter trip to the sisters though! When is that anyways? We do have a race next TWS (Texas World Speedway) and them minis are a blast too! You should come out!

You know that feeling you get when your knee puck drags on the ground...

It's amazing what even a little (mostly)chill street riding can do for your mood, not to mention what a spirited street ride will do. I've gone from the worst three days ever to fully relaxed and recharged with nothing more than a couple hours of riding and a beer.

And there is nothing like the smile you get when you light up the SM after a long stint of not riding.
